The golden's coat helps keep them cool, actually. And you can burn them pretty badly with the clippers if you shave too close. They also get sunburned very easily without it. I would take the dog to a groomer and let them trim the coat down and clean the dog up, that should be a big improvement.
From my own experience I think it's a fact of life that from about 12-14 all teenage girls reek. Something about hormones changing, maybe. She's probably just embarrassed to discuss it with you, or she can't smell it on herself, but you are right to at least try and bring it up, if you don't, someone else will and not in the nicest way. Maybe she doesn't like the smell of regular deodorant? Just a thought.
I had these same sorts of thoughts with my first, and even though it's hard, just know it's not you or your baby, it's PPD, hormones, stress and a million other things. Go see a doctor. You're not a psycho, and it takes more than that to get your child taken away.

Ah, I have seen a lot of kids with broken bones in my day. When my (then two year old) sister broke her hip and femur sledding down the basement stairs, mom used to put her in a big wagon for walks. A two year old is old enough to play basic clapping games with and I bet her mother has a few favorites from her childhood she can teach the basics of to her toddler. What about string games? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cat%27s_cradle She might be too young for those, it's...
Measles, polio and Diphtheria I worry about, but when was the last time you heard of a kid getting Diphtheria? (though I knew a girl growing up who did get it, state made us all line up for vaccinations right after) so I am relying on herd immunity for that one. I would let my kids around someone who had been recently vaccinated, but of course, lots of hand washing, nothing like fingers, toys goes in the mouth (good sanitary practices regardless of vaccination status, I...
